The White Album

Post  Ted Creedon on Tue Feb 28, 2012 3:26 pm

Not the excellent Beatles album but had a wee idea, if anyone's interested.

There was some pictures posted of various models in a white, un-decalled, virginal condition. These were either bought 'as is' or in between being stripped and decals being applied. A lot of them were sweet (the Metro comes to mind) so I thought that some of you might be interested in posting some of yours here. Some of you might not want to give away the projects you're working on so you can take a pic of it and not show it until you're finished. Not only white, but I'm sure there's a lot of models look sweet in any colour.

Feel free to add a pic, please.

To get the ball rolling here's a few;

That's a cracking idea Ted, and well done for coming up with an original topic! Wink

Here's a white 6R4 - surprise surprise for me! - that I stripped before every Tom, Dick & Harry bought any of the latest plain white body versions from Rallying4Belgium or Rally Models! geek It started out life originally as an IXO 'Clarion' 1986 1000 Lakes model, but I have plans for it so I might just have to delete this post in a couple of weeks time lol! Wink





And here's another white 6R4 - again, surprise surprise for me! - that I built from a Starter resin kit quite a few years ago. Additional detail in the shape of mud flaps, white metal wheels from a Meri kit, bonnet pins, aerial, bullet mirrors, lamp pod brackets, etc... has also been added by myself! Wink









It even has a high level header tank fitted that I made from plastic card and rod....

Some crackers there Ryan, especially the Mk2, Quattro, Impreza, and the Metro of course. Rolling Eyes

Can you tell us what your plans are for the LHD Metro yet, or is it top secret? Wink

Good stuff lads. That Starter Metro is a nice one to have, David. And as for that Quattro, Ryan - it really looks the berries Smile. The McRae Escort too - I remember getting that one and having second thoughts about putting the decals on.

Actually, thinking about Ted's opening post a little further, and specifically the 'any colour' comment - I reckon my Satin Black tarmac-hugging track day / occasional road car MG Metro 6R4 - aka 'The Beast' - should also be included.....

Have to agree - that Fiat is sweet.

Is the black Metro based on an actual road car or is it wishful thinking?
